Author Unknown But Worth Reading

I have gotten requests for a copy of a poem that I shared with my listening audience on my radio show All About Real Estate

                                                 this past Sunday. I'd  like to also share it with you.                                    

 

 

 

 

A Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime


People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.

 


When someone is in your life for a REASON . . . It is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered. And now it is time to move on.

 


When people come into your life for a SEASON . . . Because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

 


LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

  When a relationship  (whether good, bad, business, friendship, long term, short term) comes to an end, the poem above is a good read.

Lots of wisdom here Margaret Rome! I have been so blessed to have many wonderful people in my life over the years. At this time of year, I wish I could just sit down, pour a cup of tea and spend a few hours with each one.  But, unfortunately, the busy-ness of life limits these get-togethers.  So, a note or card in the mail or an email or quick phone call will have to do.

I believe this too. All through my life and business life many have come, made a huge impact and then faded away, while others have been in my life, most if not all my life (so far). I used to try to hang on, but then I realized reasons, seasons and God's plan. Sometimes they come back years later naturally too. Thank You Michael Jacobs for the re-blog that brought me here. Nice post Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland , from one broadcaster to another!
